March Wrap-Up

Does anyone else feel like they just wrote a wrap-up post for February?!? March was one of those months that seemed to go by quickly, but the days themselves were pretty long and dreary. Part of that was probably because our whole family got sick in the worst way at a time.

Reading and blogging-wise, I think we did o.k. I stuck pretty consistently to reading two books each week. David returned to talk about some of his favorites reads, I read a great book that reminded me why I loved some of my favorite childhood heroines, and I joined up with a bunch of bloggers to do a "Day in the Life" post.

I am looking forward to good things in April. The sun is out and spring seems like a real possibility. Easter is one of my favorite holidays and I'm so happy that my whole family will be home for a week or so. And at  the end of the month is my birthday (hooray!).

What was the best book you read in March?


  1. So many pretty covers this month! I definitely want to read That Thing Around Your Neck...I'm on a big Adichie kick after finishing several of her books recently. Hope April is great for you!

  2. It looks like you read some terrific books last month. That Thing Around Your Neck is on my TBR list.

  3. I read the same number of books last month as you did. Two tied for the best: Just Mercy, the amazing non-fic book, and Church of Marvels, the super-fun novel coming out in May.

  4. Awesome! Love the books you haver. I still need to something from Adhicie, I've heard nothing but great things. The Legacy of Lost Things is also intriguing to me. The cover is so pretty and simple.
